Michael's problems in Spain

Bridgestone has announced that Michael Schumacher tyre failures in Spain were not caused by excessive wear. According to the Japanese tyremaker the first failure (on lap 44) was caused because the carcass of the tyre was weakened by the Safety Car period (laps 1-3). The second tyre failure was caused by some external debris and the car was retired because of damage to the suspension during Schumacher's drive into the pits.
